Instrumentals Needed for Online Ad Campaign

INSPIRING, MODERN CLASSICAL INSTRUMENTALS are needed by a Music Supervisor for an online Advertising Campaign for a revolutionary new medical device. She’s looking hard to find Mid-Tempo Instrumentals with a modern, minimalistic quality, in the general stylistic wheelhouse of:

Intel Commercial by Moby:

Nokia Commercial by Phillip Glass:

Quoting the Music Supervisor: “It’s a really new technology, so if something sounds new, and less “tired” than the typical medical/pharmaceutical Ad music, that would be great! Tracks need to be inspiring, a bit introspective, with some gravitas, and definitely modern sounding. Think of an updated version of Philip Glass, with more modern elements. The manufacturer wants to see what direction works, so we’re open to listening to more possibilities than we might normally check out.”

We couldn’t have said it any better than that! Give them modern sounding Classical Instrumentals that establish a sense of wonderment (with a little bit of “awe” at the end) as this amazing new technology unfolds right before viewers’ eyes. Any instrumentation that would fall under the Minimal Modern Classical genre could work. A mid-ground between the Moby and Phillip Glass pieces would probably be a great starting point!

Use of subtle electronic elements that give your piece a little something “special” could work really well for this pitch. All submissions should be approximately two-minutes in length, and have a buttoned ending. Please do NOT copy or rip off the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use it only as a general guide for the tone, texture, and vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine).

The estimated sync fee is $2,000, depending on the ultimate use. You will KEEP 100% ownership of your Master, Publishing, and Writer's Share! This license will be NON-Exclusive for worldwide use (because it will be on the Internet), in perpetuity. You will still be able to pitch your Track for other uses that aren’t for products that would be considered directly competitive.

You need to own or control your Master and Composition rights to submit for this opportunity. All Instrumentals will be screened on a Yes/No basis. No full critiques. Please submit one to three Instrumentals to TAXI no later than 11:59pm (PDT), on Sunday, May 3rd, 2015. TAXI #U150503MC. Good luck!
